Thank you for the question. There are multiple tools on the web for your to uncover free profiles/resumes. If you are accustomed to only using pay tools such as the ladders, there is a world of other tools out there. There are also a lot of free training materials out there to help you learn how to leverage these tools. That is the heart of sourcing/research - continuing to learn and develop to add more tools to your tool belt of sourcing!
Derek & Jonathan have some great points about xray and indeed. So I will just throw a couple more points out there:
- You can Xray LinkedIn using a search like this (hyperlinked): site:linkedin.com "process engineer" -inurl:(dir|directory|jobs|jobs2|title|groups|company)
- You can Xray Google Plus for social media profiles (hyperlinked): site:plus.google.com ("lives * chicago"|"lived * chicago") "process engineer" -inurl:(posts|about|photos|videos|plusones)
Like I said, there are a lot more tools/places out there to source. I am sure some of the other great sourcers and recrutiers on this forum will respond with more. They are a great group of people, so you can learn a lot from them.
Have a great day!
Well you can xray jresume which is operated through jobbing.com. Jobbing is unaware that you can see free resumes when you build out a full string.
Indeed has a resume database but there is no way of getting the info from them directly. With some snooping you can find out more contact info though.
Tony has a great post about xraying, which I highly recommd, in addition there are alot of places to check. I really like document finders because you can easily specify resume and whatever you want. Some are listed below
